california just reelected herself the other night, a veteran of the intelligence committee said she wished that president obama had not accepted petraeus' resignation, that he didn't need to leave office for an indiscretion of that kind. the president didn't immediately accept it, but ultimately he gave in to the logic that petraeus himself was emphasizing, which is it simply wasn't tenable for him to stay in the job having done what he did. and i think everybody is disappointed because petraeus's talents are recognized by people in both parties and have been for years. but he is -- he is paying a very, very stiff price for the mistake that he made. and the white house is simply going to have to roll with that. >> and there are a lot of folks, john harwood, this afternoon, especially out there on twitter and the blogosphere who are raising questions about all of this happening so close to the time he was set to testify next week, that closed door meeting on the hill regarding benghazi. >> everything we know about this so far is that is simply the speculation. and with the touch of paranoia

, california, democratic senator barbara boxer. senator, it is so good for you to join us this evening. thank you. >> i'm delighted. just delighted. >> senator boxer, talk to me a bit about what we saw happen in 2008 on the one hand sort of women showing up in an amazing way as secretary of state clinton has said, putting all of those cracks in the glass ceiling and then rolling back right there in congress by 2010. what do we do to get our voices back? >> well, i believe we're going to have our voices back on election day. i really believe that the women are going to break for barack obama. and, you know, it isn't like these issues are hard to follow. we look at the republican platform and what does it say? it says that no abortion, no abortion, you're a criminal if you get an abortion, even in cases of rape and insiscest. the reason i po cuss on rape is how outrageous it is, melissa. it is a crime. it's such a vicious crime in half the states there no limitation. if there's dna found 10, 20 later, you go after the perpetrator. i think women get it. mitt romney didn't lift a finger to change
years of debilitating gridlock. joining us from oakland is democratic senator from california barbara boxer. senator boxer, pleasure to have you on the show. >> nice to be on your show. >> senator, you know, we've talked about the makeup of the next senate and some early prognosticators are saying, the actual power shift in terms of seats held won't change that much, but you may end up seeing a more liberal democratic caucus in the upper chamber just by virtue of who the folks coming in are and believe. i call -- the race between joe donnelly and richard mourdock, mourdock was supposed to have this butnd up. the seat may go to donnelly. chris murphy replacing joe lieberman and tammy baldwin may replace herb in wisconsin. what does that mean in terms of the caucus and animating policies of the democratic caucus and the upper chamber? >> i think this focus on liberal and conservative misses the entire point. the question is, are we going to come together, meet each other half way and make sure this economic recovery continues? these are the big issues facing us in this election and the
of california, oregon, towards washington state. we really could get nailed. this could be one of the bigger rain events of the season or maybe the year for northern california. that little dark area between crescent city and redding is estimated rainfall totals up to six to eight inches. that's significant stuff. we could have flooding concerns on the rivers in the days ahead. if you're traveling anywhere in the middle of the country, beautiful weather. look how nice that is, denver, kansas city, st. louis, oklahoma city down to texas. florida still one of the warmer spots. still a little cold in areas of the northern plains. overall, it's a lot better than it was. it's a lot warmer, too. you're watching "morning joe," everyone. we'll be back soon. we're brewed by starbucks. of washington about the future of medicare and social security. anncr: but you deserve straight talk about the options on the... table and what they mean for you and your family. ancr: aarp is cutting through all the political spin. because for our 37 million members, only one word counts. get the facts at earnedasay.or
this closely. when i've spoken to people in texas, i've spoken to people in california, they're all focused on this story. seeing the president in the role of president does have an impact on some undecided voters, i think. i think that there was that leadership role which he managed to fulfill, and he fulfilled it well. >> it's just an awkward situation for the romney campaign. since sandy made landfall earlier this week, we mentioned fema. mitt romney has been facing questions about his plans for funding fema and disaster response. something he suggested turning back to the states during a debate last year. attempting to clarify the position, the romney campaign released a statement reading in part, quote, this. i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individu
and california in the last 24 hours that shows obama losing nine to ten points even more than that in connecticut off of his 2008 performance and that would represent a pretty substantial decline that's greater than that elsewhere in the country. in terms of the hurricane it's hard to say. i'm not sure about what areas are affected. the atlantic coast of new jersey is not in a democratic area. staten island will vote for romney. suffolk county, new york is divided. i don't know how much turnout will fall on the city of new york. if i want does it would make a difference. >> democrats are contesting on the shore, there's talk maybe the republican areas hardest hit there. i want to ask you another thing about the battleground. i took a look this morning and it seems there's basically a fire wall here that obama has on tuesday that involves three states, ohio, wisconsin, and nevada. if romney won basically everything else that's up for grabs in not these three states he would be short of 270. he would have 267. if you look at the clear averages in these three states these are persistent leads. ohio,
, the continuing brutal attacks by the serbs in sarajevo, and an an earthquake shakes southern california near northridge. meanwhile, in massachusetts, a little known businessman, willard mitt romney, announces his candidacy for the united states senate as a republican. it's his first run for political office. and his foe? one of the biggest icons of american politics, senator ted kennedy. >> some of us wondered, why would you want to take on ted kennedy in massachusetts as your first political task? and he was very committed, very engaged. >> in fact, the 1994 massachusetts senate race would be a fascinating precursor to the 2012 presidential election with many of the same issues and campaign tactics put in play by both sides. romney, playing up his business success, his opponent questioning it, and questions about romney's religion, the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. but in 1994, it was ted kennedy, a five-term senator, who seemed vulnerable, coming off the well publicized 1991 rape trial of his nephew, william kennedy smith. even though smith is acquitted, the political damage

is senator barbara boxer, democrat from california and a great champion for women's rights. thank you for joining me, senator. >> thank you, reverend. >> i want to play for you a newly uncovered video of governor romney from 2007 talking with a radio show host about his real record on women. was not on the air during this exchange. watch this, senator. >> i was governor four years. i had a number of pieces of legislation that came to my desk and i vetoed any bill that was in favor of choice. i was entirely consistent in favor of life. >> look at my record. but lately he's been trying to hide from that record. and run to the middle. how extreme is the real mitt romney, senator boxer? >> he's very extreme. i'd love to hear this latest clip. governor romney vetoed so many bills. i forget the exact number. he was overwritten by the legislature because he was so out of the mainstream. you know, all you have to do is go back to the convention. remember, the republican platform makes abortion a criminal act. >> right. >> and it had no exception for rape and incest. mitt romney could have sai
look the way that scott brown has had to defend his vote against california began and the way that the republicans campaigned against sotomayor. it's amazing they have been left out. >> and knowing how important women are to the obama campaign. if he does get women above 56% and particularly if younger women don't turn out, then obama's chances may be doomed. and knowing that, why not emphasize i apointed two women to the supreme court who were the third and fourth women ever appointed to the court in the history of the country. they may have missed an opportunity. >> they did draw a sharp distinction with the republicans. in large part because they had such -- it's so easy to do that. especially with paul ryan on the ticket. there have been anti-abortion on the past, but never one with a legislative trail like paul ryan's. and mitt romney has gone almost as extreme as mr. ryan has in overturning roe versus wade. he would do that against the contraception hostility. i can see on women's issues in particular, you want to be on offense talking about your own record. >> but this
majorities in both chambers ain california and illinois. in the state of carolina, in the state of north carolina they gained a republican super majority in the house and senate. in georgia, they appear unindependent away from having one in the senate. with might winning 24 states on wednesday, no one expected the president's coattails to turn blue. republican gains in the deep, red south is kind of like running up the score. down the ballot has less to do with coat tails than with parka than with hoods. against the bitter cold that defines february or march. outside the virginia state capitol in richmond. voters are looking for leadership at all levels of g governance and they vote in changes. they are not stupid. elections have consequences and they go both ways. tender white meat chicken and vegetables in a crust made from scratch. marie callender's. it's time to savor. in a crust made from scratch. have led to an increase intands clinical depression. drug and alcohol abuse is up. and those dealing with grief don't have access to the professional help they need. when you see these iss
at the university of california. $325 million wasted. there is actually nothing on the scoreboard to show for it. karl rove says no, no it was a good thing. >> five minutes of revenue at the cacasinos. it is a waste. and the billionaires. but what i think they did do, they tilted the playing field and made it harder for barack obama and democrats like brown and elsewhere where they flooded with money. can you imagine what the final results might have been without that money if they didn't have to worry about an extra $20 million he would have had a greater win in ohio? i think the president might have picked up an extra point or two with the negative adds like groups like karl rove ran. barack obama was able to raise a lot of money. mitt romney couldn't do that. so the playing field should have been this way but that money go it closer to even. so they came through. >> the democrats won, they won more seats in the senate and in the house. does it matter how much their winning percentage was? >> of course it does matter. it is going to be difficult for president obama to do much in his second ter
of california. there's a lot of news out there. we have a lot to cover. first, congressman larson, about this barn storming tour that is being suggested that the president might do. will this put pressure on lawmakers? would public pressure make a difference at this point? >> well, i think it's important that the president be out there and i think it would only enhance the opportunity for us coming to solutions. when the american public wants to see is a congress working toward solutions that will put them back to work. and ed, you have emphasized this over and over again on your show. job creation equals deficit reduction. so putting -- this is something that everyone can agree on in the congress. they wouldn't even take up the president's bill. let's take up the job creation bill. let's signal to the american public and the the entire world that this nation is going back to work and we know that lowering that unemployment rate will drop the deficit and produce a better society. and also with regard to taxes. we have a clear path forward here. everybody again agrees that the middle clas

among men. joining me now for a look at the final stretch of this close race, california senator barbara boxer. senator, thanks so much for joining us. the gender gap has been a big issue, the women's vote has been a big issue among voters throughout this campaign. let's talk about the gender gap. the president has sort of narrow lead among women. it's no longer the double-digit lead that he had. but is this enough for him to carry him, despite the disadvantage that he has with male, men voters, especially white men? >> first of all there are more women voters than men voters. so when he's leading women by eight and romney is leading men by seven, i think the math works in our favor. but here's the other interesting statistic -- among the undecides, the few that are left, most of them are women. and i think as women look at this, whether they're number one issue is jobs, and they look at the latest jobs reports, do you know that you probably do, that barack obama, under his leadership, we've created more private-sector jobs in the last couple of months than george w. bush in eight years?
